From September 8 to 10, 2023, Hamburg will once again be all about cruising: the Hamburg Cruise Days are returning! After a special edition last year, which took place in a reduced form due to the pandemic, visitors can expect a superlative festival this year. The event will feature impressive cruise ships and a high-quality, colorful land program, including the famous Blue Port Hamburg and spectacular event highlights such as the parade on Saturday evening. AIDA Cruises is once again a premium partner of the event.

During the three-day festival, nine cruise ships will be featured in the Hamburg Cruise Days Parade, Blue Port Hamburg and a diverse program ashore ranging from culture to culinary arts. Fans of cruises have long waited for this event and are invited to the Port of Hamburg from Friday, September 8 to Sunday, September 10, 2023.

Michael Otremba, managing director of the licensing Hamburg Tourismus GmbH:

“The Hamburg Cruise Days and the Blue Port Hamburg will create a unique atmosphere in the port. Guests and Hamburg residents will be able to experience the special fascination of sea travel and cruising up close, as is only possible in Hamburg.”
